There are so many dogs needing wonderful homes like your that THAT is what you need to focus on.
Course you aren't 'replacing' your other beloved dog, but instead now have an open place in you heart to fill with the next one! I'm sure Rebel wants you to remember him with love but not hang onto the sadness and to have you happy with another GSD in your house would HONOR his memory!
Go with an open heart but also use common sense that this may be your journey to get a new pup.
